Trailer: Fox’s “SLEEPY HOLLOW” series doesn’t seem real

“Put your hands on your head!” screams a cop at the Headless Horseman. Because, you know…

I’m quite amazed by the trailer for upcoming FOX series, SLEEPY HOLLOW. The full-length promo plays like brilliant satire of the current, and ever dumb, revisionist history literary mashup supernatural trend. Your eyes will widen at a resurrected/time travel sleeping Ichabod Crane and reach your fucking feet by the time exposition-heavy witch dreams, occult orders, NATIONAL TREASURE-ish secret doings of the founding fathers, biblical stakes, mismatched buddy cops and super hilarious Starbucks jokes come into play.

If you’re curious what’s actually happening, “ICHABOD CRANE  is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.”

SLEEPY HOLLOW is Mondays this fall. Can’t wait!

    Duhh. I sware I wuznt stupid be4 I watched that.

    I don’t even accept Bates Motel because they set it a mere 50-odd years after it’s proper setting. But lets face it, this still looks better than 3/4 of the stuff on television, now, faithful chronology or not.

    Somebody sat around and said “What if we were to combine Sleepy Hollow and Demolition Man into an hour long crime drama?….GOLD!”

    Wow! Hadn’t even heard of this show before this post. I’m not surprised that something like this is being made, especially with the success of Bates Motel and Hannibal. Of course the studios are going to continue cashing in on the classics. I’ll watch this to review it, but I can already tell that the probability of it being drivel is very high.

    Hmmm not so sure what to make of this. Looks like it could be a little bit on the ‘meh’ side.

    As a movie this might be an OK idea, as on ongoing TV show it could run out of steam very quickly.

    this looks really good. i always loved the washington Irving story. It kinda puts me in the halloween mood in a way. So as a sleepy hollow fan, I will support this :)
